This is a peeve post. I guess I'm just in a mood today.

Each time I log in to Linkshare my mailbox is full of program solicitations from merchants. For the most part they are not targeted to my site categories, and when I follow up with the merchants, many do not accept New York affiliates.

As Mark mentioned in another thread (http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=121791), CJ charges merchants by the number of emails they send. Does Linkshare? Wouldn't it make sense to let merchants sort by location and/or site catetgory to choose affiliates to blast? Or, worse, if they have that capability, why do they broadcast willy nilly?
(That word lightened my mood )
